Just a pic of the room now fully plastered- and this morning I am really glad I am not in the same condition. I am also discovering that typing with one finger, left handed at that, is a very time consuming process! Due to an attack of stupid last night, I am sat here with my right arm in a sling. So here is the story:
As you all know we are decorating what will be my new craft room. Well, last night I stopped what I was doing, made our lunch for work & cooked dinner. Put said dinner out & called Beloved Hubby for his, took my plate & mug of coffee into the front room, so we could sit & watch something while we ate. Didn't turn the light on first, as I intended to put my plate down on the stool, and go to the light switch. Completely forgot that there was a pack of 9ft long skirting board lay on the floor along the back of the one sofa, hadn't got the light on so didn't see it in the dark, and fell over it. Would have been a better landing had I not had my hands full and fell straight down, arms out in front of me, 'cos like an idiot I was STILL holding onto the plate & mug.Knew as soon as I landed that my right arm took the brunt of the fall, Hubby thought I had probably dislocated it. After an evening/night spent in A&E, and x-rays,because the first assessment nurse thought I had either dislocated my shoulder, or fractured the upper arm, it turns out I have sprained my shoulder/ possibly torn ligaments. I have some record breaking bruises,only to be expected, I'm the sort of person who bruises if you look at me hard,lol. Amazingly, the plate & mug came out unscathed, so I can vouch for the toughness of Ikea crockery, by the way. In fact the only thing broken is my attendance record at work- first time off sick in 10 years. So there is a bit of a picture shortage this week, I can only use my arm if I keep it right up close to my body, which sort of limits the options a bit.
So I shall be getting round as many people as possible, but I apologise in advance for what will be very short comments, as I am not the worlds fastest typist at the best of times, and lefthanded, one finger- well, I'd probably only be a quarter of the way round by next week, lol.Its really annoying how you always manage to injure your main hand/arm- if it had been my left I landed on, I would be at work, and could carry on doing most things- although Hubby did have to help me get dressed this morning- I did comment to a friend that its possibly the first time he's had to put a bra on me! Have a great Wednesday everyone.
